The Digging Mitts are a pair of very handy (excuse the pun) gloves that let you dig up soft patches of ground, revealing hearts, rupees, treasure or hidden air vents. Sometimes even monsters…

To use them, approach one of the circular patches of ground with an “X” shape, then press A. Depending on the patch of ground, sometimes you can dig in the same patch multiple times.

Where to Find

You can receive the Digging Mitts by helping the distressed Mogma in the underground portion of Eldin Volcano.


The Digging Mitts will be replaced by the Mogma Mitts after helping another Mogma in the Fire Sanctuary.

You are Link, a resident of Skyloft–a floating village in the vast sky. For ages, you’ve been training at the Knight Academy and, today, the day of your graduation has arrived. While your life thus far has been peaceful, soon nothing will be the same again, when your beloved friend, Zelda, is stolen from you…

Our strategy guide for The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (HD) contains all the necessary knowledge to search for and rescue Zelda, such as a full walkthrough with detailed maps. Plus every hero needs a rest; if you want to grab all the collectables and fix other people’s problems (sidequests), we can help you with that too!

Newly added:

  • Revised and re-structured the walkthrough to make it more accessible.
  • Added dozens of useful maps.
